Workers' Compensation FAQ

Is my employer required to have workers' comp insurance?

Yes, if your employer employs three or more employees, he/she is required to have workers' compensation insurance and provide its benefits to all full-time and part-time employees.

What steps should I take after being injured on the job?

If you have been injured on the job, you must inform your employer at once. This can be done either verbally or in writing. Seek medical attention for your injuries immediately after the accident, then contact an experienced North Georgia workers' compensation lawyer from our firm to go over the circumstances surrounding your accident, so that we can advise you on your legal options and help you determine how best to proceed.

How do I file a workers' comp claim?

For basic workers' comp claims, your employer should be able to provide you with the forms you will need to file your claim. In certain instances, however, employers either do not have workers' compensation insurance, have additional policies you are unaware of, or are more interested in their own bottom line. If you have been seriously injured in a workplace accident we advise you consult with a workers' compensation lawyer at our firm.

My employer is not at fault. Am I still eligible to file a claim?

According to Georgia state law, employees are entitled to workers' compensation benefits even when the workplace accident was not the employer's fault. In some instances, you may be able to file for workers' comp benefits even if the accident was your fault. No matter the circumstances, it is always best to consult with an experienced workers' compensation attorney who can review your case and advise you on the best course of action to pursue.

I accidentally injured myself. Is that covered?

In many cases, yes. There are exceptions though, such as if you failed to follow safety guidelines or take clearly laid out precautions to prevent such injuries. Our workers' compensation attorney can review your case and advise you of your legal rights.
